Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 1/26/19 11:41am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde could be released this offseason because the team would save $4.75 million in salary cap space if Hyde is let go.
Huddle Up: Hyde probably will not be able to find a starting job if he is released but could be a No. 2 running back for a team. He probably will see a handful of carries during games next season and may only be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 1/24/19 1:29pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins tweeted Thursday, Jan. 24, that he is leaving Jacksonville, meaning the Jaguars have declined his $500,000 team option and he will enter free agency.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins has shown he's capable of being a No. 1 fantasy tight end, but he only caught 11 passes for 90 yards and one touchdown in five games last year. We need to see him get back on track before adding him to fantasy rosters.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 1/10/19 12:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette met with executive vice president Tom Coughlin and other members of the team's front office to clear the air regarding his up-and-down 2018 season and perceived negative attitude, according to sources. The meeting seemingly went well for both sides and they are prepared to move in a positive direction.
Huddle Up: There had been whispers of Fournette possibly leaving the Jaguars after two years, but those were unfounded and seem to have already been quenched. There is risk in drafting Fournette, leading with the fact that he has missed 11 games in his first two seasons. The talent is evident, though, and he must still be viewed as a second or third-round fantasy draft pick.
D.J. Chark - WRPosted 1/9/19 6:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark could compete for a starting receiver job next season if he can improve route running and pass catching, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid.
Huddle Up: Chark was limited to 14 receptions and 174 yards in his rookie season but probably will be more involved in the passing game next season. Owners in most leagues probably can pass on him during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season if he plays well early.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 1/2/19 5:41pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles believes he'll be elsewhere in 2019, saying, 'I don't think I'll be back next year. Being honest, I envision I'll be somewhere else next year.' It's also possible the Jaguars may delay cutting him until 2020, when his dead cap hit would be just $5 million instead of $16.5 million this offseason.
Huddle Up: Despite coming up just one game short of the Super Bowl only a year ago, Bortles couldn't survive this season as the starting quarterback, losing the job to backup Cody Kessler due to inconsistency. The former No. 3 overall draft pick seems more likely to leave town and compete for a starting job elsewhere.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 1/2/19 11:05pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not expected to be released during the offseason, according to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero. Fournette was criticized by Tom Coughlin, the team's executive vice president of football operations, for 'disrespectful' behavior during the team's Week 17 loss, and there were also reports that the remaining guaranteed money in Fournette's contract was voided by the Jaguars due to his suspension earlier in the season.
Huddle Up: Fournette has been solid for the Jags, though thus far he hasn't been the game changer that other recent first-round backs like Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott have been. The LSU product has also missed 11 of 32 games during his two seasons, creating a medical red flag moving forward. Heading into 2019 he looks like a borderline RB2/RB3 candidate depending on what changes the offseason brings.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/31/18 8:38am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was stripped of the guaranteed money in his contract due to his suspension, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: That certainly won't make Fournette happy, but there isn't much fantasy impact on this news. He is too talented not to utilize in 2019, and he'll be on the back end of the RB1 group.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/30/18 8:49am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde will be the starting running back for the Jaguars in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will receive most of the carries during the game with T.J. Yeldon being involved in the passing game. Hyde can be a flex option in standard leagues, while Yeldon can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/30/18 9:34am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is starting in Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 30, in what's likely his last game with the team.
Huddle Up: Bortles has topped 20 fantasy points in only two of his last six starts and even with with the inactives and uncertainty of Week 17, Bortles is nothing more than a two-QB or deep-league QB flyer.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/30/18 2:22pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 13 yards on 10 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 17. He also caught two passes for six yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will be the No. 2 running back behind Leonard Fournette if he stays with the Jaguars and can be avoided in most drafts in 2019.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/30/18 2:14pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles 15-for-28 for 107 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Houston Texans in Week 17. He also rushed for 15 yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Bortles likely will not return to the Jaguars next season and will have trouble finding another starting job. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues next season even if he starts for a team.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:34pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught three passes for 10 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Westbrook was targeted at least five times in 12 of the 16 games this season but had held to under 40 yards in eight games. He appears to be a solid option in the Jaguars passing game and can be a late-round pick in leagues next season.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:31pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief caught two passes for 21 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Moncrief will be a free agent this offseason, so he could be with a new team in 2019. He has posted solid numbers during his career and could be a late-round pick in some leagues next season depending on his situation.
Keelan Cole - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:25pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole caught four passes for 45 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Cole has been a non-factor in the passing game during the second half of the season and finished the season with only one touchdown. His fantasy value in 2019 likely will depend on the team's quarterback. He could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues if the Jaguars upgrade at quarterback.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/29/18 9:28pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde (knee) is expected to play against the Houston Texans in Week 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hyde should handle a bulk of the early-down work with Leonard Fournette sidelined, but he's still just a flex option against a tough Houston run defense.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/28/18 8:47am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) was out of practice Friday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: His status appears grim for Week 17. Carlos Hyde could be an RB2 against the Houston Texans.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/28/18 9:31am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is listed as doubtful for Week 17 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde is questionable with a knee injury, so the Jaguars may be forced to go with T.J. Yeldon and seventh-round rookie David Williams. Fournette has undoubtedly had a disappointing season, although he never could seem to get right physically and watched his offensive linemen drop like flies throughout the season. He'll likely be viewed as an RB2 in 2019 drafts.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/28/18 2:33pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde may be a game-time decision, so owners will need to monitor his status over the weekend. He likely will share playing time with T.J. Yeldon if he is active for the game since Leonard Fournette has been ruled out. Hyde has a chance to be a flex option in standard leagues if he plays.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/27/18 1:20pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Owners will know more about Fournette's status in the next day or two. He can be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 running back if he is active for the game.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/26/18 9:37am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will start the season finale against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: There are more fruitful propositions than playing Bortles against the Texans. He's two-QB league fodder only.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/26/18 1:43pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) was listed as a limited participant Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: If Fournette is able to play he should be treated more as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in Week 17, as the Houston Texans rank fourth in rush defense and they're still fighting hard for better playoff seeding.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 12/23/18 5:52pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught seven of his eight targets for 45 yards and rushed once for nine yards in a 17-7 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Westbrook is the closest thing Jacksonville has to a go-to receiver, but with an awful quarterback situation, he's a desperation flex option, at best.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/23/18 5:49pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed 18 times for 43 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 28 yards in a 17-7 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fournette has been held under 50 rushing yards in three straight games, and with no threat of a passing attack to scare defenses, he is going to remain a volume-based flex option against Houston in Week 17.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/23/18 5:44pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles replaced QB Cody Kessler during a 17-7 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 16 because his mobility was better suited to handle Miami's pass rush, according to head coach Doug Marrone. He completed five of his six passes for 39 yards and rushed four times for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Bortles or Kessler will start the finale, but regardless of who is under center, they can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/23/18 11:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde carried the ball eight times for 47 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Hyde's 47 yards were his most since joining the Jags, though most of them came late when the team was draining the clock against a dispirited Dolphins squad. You'd need to be desperate to consider Hyde in Week 17, especially against a Texans team with something to play for, but if you find yourself short handed with guys resting it wouldn't be the worst roll of the dice.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/21/18 1:03pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fournette has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last two games but has received at least 10 carries in six of his seven games this season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/20/18 3:33pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: There's no doubt Fournette will play in Week 16 but it remains to be seen what impact he can make on championship matchups with quarterback Cody Kessler under center. Although Fournette has totaled fewer than 100 yards from scrimmage the last two games combined, he still may be of use as an RB2.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/19/18 2:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) was able to practice in full on Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Fournette might be ready to go in Week 16, but he is an extremely risky fantasy play. He was active last week, but the coaching staff said they wanted to look at David Williams instead. The Dolphins have a leaky run defense, but Fournette might not get a chance to tear them up.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/17/18 9:23am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was not injured in Week 15 but ran only one time in the second half - for 25 yards - so the coaching staff could get a closer look at David Williams, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Fournette also served as the kickoff returner in Week 15 after not having played that role since he was a freshman in college.
Huddle Up: Fournette confirmed "that was the game plan coming in." It's almost unthinkable that a coaching staff likely on its way out would sit its offensive star so the Jaguars could see their seventh-round pick in action. It is now clear owners should have been suspicious when Jacksonville made Carlos Hyde inactive. Fournette has a mouthwatering matchup in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins, but owners may have to bench him unless the coaching staff commits to giving him his full workload next week.
Cody Kessler - QBPosted 12/16/18 3:23pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Cody Kessler went 9-for-17 for 57 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Washington Redskins in Week 15. He also rushed for 68 yards on six carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Kessler has not done much since taking over the starting quarterback job and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
